The court room was well filled yesterday

youth of the tender age of nineteen years, by
the unwarranted method called larceny.

caught his victim in a moment and who
readily consented to trade and pay a consid

Having received the wateb from Cornish
he by some trick of juggling substituted a
villainous ticker of about the value of two
dollars and a half a bushel which he handed
him with the remark that he would trust him
for the jten dollars. Proving deaf to all re

may be done in this line there will be no

Rapid Payment Relief.
A committee representing the Associated
National banks of eastern Pennsylvania,
presented to the house committee on bank
ing aud currency the following petition for
relief from the consequences of the rapid
payment of the 3 per cents: First to create
a contingent redemption fund from the sur
plus remaining of the one per cent tax on
circulation, after paying the expenses of the
National bank system, and , to this add the
gain from lost hank notes.
Second —To make the 5 per cent,
reserve fund now required to
be deposited, and continuously maintained
with United States treasury, liable for the re
demption of any part of the circulation of
any insolvent national bank if its resources
and proposed contingent redemption fund
should prove insufficient. This is practically
a substitute for the bond deposit of the mu
tual or united guarantee of all national
banks. In substituting this plan the com
mittee called attention to the fact that of
3,070 national banks organized since 1863
only eighty-nine have gone into the hands of
receivers. These paid their circulation in
full, and an average of sev
enty per cent. on all other
indebtedness, thirty-one of them paying in
full, lf no bonds had been pledged and no
preference given to notes over other liabil
ities, the loss on the notes of these banks
would have averaged less than $140,000 an
nually, while net annual yield of the proposed
contingent redemption fund would have
amounted to $3,300,000 or more than twen
ty-two times the amount necessary to provide
for the loss. The losses hereafter should not
be greater than heretofore.

Berlin, March 13.—Bismarck appeared in
the reichstag to-day and made a speech in
justification of his course in refusing to trans
mit thc Lasker resolution, to the reichstag.
He said be had recognized the good inten
tions of the American congress, but was un
able to harness himself to the car of opposi
tion. Bismarck continued: "I should have
refrained from mentioning this matter ex
cept for the manner in which the reichstag
has discussed it, and for the charge of inter
feieuce made by Herr Richter. The relations
of Germany with America have always been
good, and the government has constantly
tried to cultivate them. Ever since there
has been a minister, the relation of the two
countries been satisfactory. After the war
with Austria in 1806 and again after the
Franco-Prussian war, America gave numer
ous proofs of sympathy, not only with the
prosperity of the empire, but also with the
person ofthe chancellor."
Nothing has occurred to disturb these good
relations from the outside. I regarded the
resolutions touching Lasker, as an expres
sion of the goodly feeling of the American
congress toward Germany, a good feeling
which has been promoted and cultivated by
myself. I would have presented the resolution
to the reichstag, had I not been prevented
by its form. It was confined to a general
expression of sympathy, but it expressed the
conviction that Lasker's labor had been very
useful to Germany. This clause was di
rected against the policy, which Lasker had
opposed for years. Now, the question arises,
whether Lasker was right; if he was, then
the emperor's policy, my policy wa6 wrong.
Lasker belonged to the opposition group, who
made immense capital out of Laskers
Bismarck was interrupted at this point with
loud cries of "shame" by tbe left. He turn
ed indignantly towards the quarter from
which the cries came, and advancing toward
thc left he shouted "the cry of 'shame' is an
insult to me and demands for me the protec
tion of the president. I hope the anonymous
libellers will give their names. They should
have cried 'shame' on those who carried on
political intrigues at Lasker's grave. As
chancellor I can do nothing, of course, with
out the emperor's approval, and I could not
be expected to ask his permission to present
such a resolution to the reichstag. Lasker
introduced himself in America as the
champion of German freedom against
a government of despotic tendencies,
impersonated in its chancellor. Am I to
make myself my enemy's postman. Even in
the assumptions that the Americans are not in
timately acquainted with our circumstances,
the American minister at Berlin, or some
other official, who possessed sufficient
knowledge might have sont a confidential
warning against conferring on me the
part of a postman. This was not done,
therefore I instructed the German minister
at Washington tbat I could not possibly for
ward the resolution. The resolution did not
emanate from congress, but only from the
house of representatives. I never intended
to annoy America or disturb our
relations. I am simply unable
to make the opinion of Lasker adopted by
the American house of representatives, my
own. My desire is that tbe good relations
which have subsisted between the two coun
tries for a century may Btill continue. My
action was forced upon me by the abuse to
which I was subjected here at home,as a con
sequence of the vote of the house of repre
sentatives. Prussia withstood all the temp
tations from other powers to interfere in the
affairs of America, and to recognize the
southern states. Indeed, Prussia might
claim the merit of having prevented such a
recognition by the benevolent attitude which
she maintained." Bismarck thus closed.
Dr. Hoenel of the university of Kiel, who
is the leading progressist, and who took a
prominent part in the incidental debate
apropos the Lasker affair some days ago,
took the floor and said: "It is a matter of
profound regret that Bismarck should have
uttered no single word in praise of
Lasker. The people are accustomed to re
serve reproof for the living, why has Bie
marck not spared the dead?"
The chancellor retorted, he had not sat in
judgment on the dead, but those who had
tried to glorify the deceased, had done so.
He denied the alleged friendliness of the
Lasker party toward him. Lasker had con
sistenly and persistenly opposed him.
Dr. Hoenel urged that the friendly senti
ments of the resolution should have been re
cognized without too carefully weighing tbe
words in which they were expressed.
Bismarck contended that the exchange of
sentiment between parliaments were highly
inappropriate, but he added, Dr. Hoenel, if
he so pleased, could introduce a motion con
veying the thanks of the reichstag to the
house of r epresentatives for its expression
of spmpathy. The appearance of Bismarck
in the reichstag is generally attributed to his
desire to maintain friendly relations with
Tlte American View.
Washington, March 13.—The cablegram
reporting the speech of Prince Bismarck,
was shown this afternoon by a representa
tive of the Associated Press, to the members
of the foreign affairs committee of the
house, and other members, by whom it was
read with interest. Among the comments
made upon the subject were the following:
Governor Otlrtin, chairman of the foreign
affairs committee, and ex-minister to Prussia,
said, "A great big statesman made a great
big mistake. When such a man makes a
mistake it is apt to be a big one. The
diplomacy of secretary Frelinghuysen in this
connection is very commendable, and we
shall probably say so in our report to-mor
Ex-Senator Eaton, member of the house
foreign affairs committee, and of the sub
committee, to which the subject of the Las
ker resolution was referred, said, "The
speech shows that Bismarck individually,
has no antipathy against the American peo
ple. No violent resolution can possibly pass
our committee. We shall probably report to
morrow, and I cannot express my opinion
more fully until then. I will say, the de
partment of state deserves the good will of
the country and this house, and has sustain
ed the high reputation it has maintained for
Mr. Kasson, ex-minister to Austria, said,
"Prince Bismarck evidently regarded the re
fusal to forward our resolutions as a purely
internal German question, and aims to show
he was governed exclusively by the consider
ation of the internal policy and not by any
feeling against our body, or our country. It
seems to me to confirm the view taken by the
state department that a further question up
on that resolution is purely a German ques
tion, involving relations between Prince Bis
marck and his parliament. In this country
we do not quarrel over a eulogy delivered at
the grave of an enemy. It is a time for praise
and not for censure, and the mouth of criti
cism is usually closed in such a scene. If
there be reasons in Germany for a public
struggle over the phrases of a eulogy of the
the dead, we should not be expected here to
Congressman Hitt, ex-assistant secretary
of state, ex-secretary of legation and charge
at Paris, a member of the committee on for
eign affairs, said: "The Lasker resolution
business has been placed in such a shape by
our own foreign office, there is nothing left
at this moment to be done, and it is
doubtful whether it is necessary that any
thing should be said. The resolution was
one which no one in this country, and ex
cept Bismarck, no one in Europe, thought
or in any way related to the domestic
politics of Germany, and as an utterance of
courtesy and friendly sympathy it was there
said to be complete. It is hard to show any
reason for saying it over again. The
position and dignity of the. house have been
properly protected by the course taken by
our own secretary of state. The question, as
it just now stands, is in a form disadvanta
geous to Bismarck. It is doubtful
do so by any resolution, declar
ing its unconcern as to the individual opinion
of a public officer, who showed hostility, but
was unable, in interpreting the resolution, to
change its kindly character, or prevent the
body for whom it was intended from fully
understanding It. Bismark's speech shows
his embarrassment, and consciousness of the
difficulties of the position in which he has
Congressman Ochiltree, author of the
Lasker resolution, said: "It is a complete
hedge. If Bismarck would instruct his min
ister to return that resolution to him, I think
this whole affair, in consideration of what he
has said, would drop. There never was any
intention to do more than compliment the
people of Germany by paying our tribute of
respect to one of Germany's greatest men.
Mr. Lamb said, the speech demonstates
that Bismarck has discovered he has made a
great mistake in his course, which has com
pelled him to go into the reichstag and make
a public explanation. Tbe speech is an ad
mission on his part, that he, at least, acted
hastily, and in bad temper, otherwise he
would not have deigned to notice the matter
Mr. Deuster, also a member of the foreign
affairs committee, and a representative Ger
man, expressed himself highly pleased with
the speech, he said, Bismarck had placed a
different construction on the resolution from
that he had given in his letter to the Ger
man minister here. He thought the speech
would have some influence on the committee
of which he was a member. ''When Lasker
was in this country," Deuster said, l,I
passed much time with hira. In all our
interviews he always expressed highest re
gard for the policy of Bismarck. I spoke to
him on the subject of changing the natural
alization treaty between this country
and Germany. He 6aid he did not
believe there could be a change, because
when tbe treaty was made in 1868 Germany
was in a position to make more concessions
than sh#has been at any other time."
S. 8. Cox said the utterances of Bismarck
Hewitt characterized thc speech as a good
natured attempt of Bismarck to relieve him
self of the unfavorable comment caused by
his action. "The position he takes," said
Hewitt, "is simply absurd. In the inter
course among nations the mere vehicle of
transmission does not become responsible
for the character of the communication any
more, to use Bismarck's phrase, 'than a car
on a railroad is affected by the freight.' "
